Producer

Bowen Estate is a family owned vineyards in Coonawarra, the vineyard has been evolving over the past 40 years to where it is today, producing a small range of wines located in prime terra rossa soil. They have a very hands on approach and believe in the old tradition of hand pruning the vines, treating the grapes with more care. This method combined with an arch cane trellis system is believed to improve the bunch exposure, ripeness, evenness and budburst of the fruit giving Bowen Estate the quality fruit they need to create the big flavour soft, tannin characteristics of their premium wines.

Region

Situated in the Limestone Coast zine of South Australia, the Coonawarra wine region is synonymous with Cabernet Sauvignon; so much so that success with other grape varieties is often overlooked. It is relatively new to wine-making - from 1890 to 1945 most of the wine was distilled into brandy - but today the famous terra rossa (or red soils) on which all the early vineyards were planted produce predominantly Cabernet Sauvignon wines, full of plum and blackcurrant fruit.
